Traumatic memory appears without warning. It stops you in your tracks, invades, and overwhelms. In a moment’s notice, your body and brain feel hijacked. No matter what you try and bury it under: work, food, relationships – it’s still there. You may dissociate or maybe you’re watching it happen across the room, in your child’s face. You never asked for this, but, then again, neither did they. Whether you are seeking support for yourself, your family, or the child in your life, I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and walk through this with you.

Our identity is shaped by our relationships. Those attachments have created patterns in our lives we may not be aware of. Therapy is a great place to explore those patterns. Whether you'd like to work through some current stumbling blocks that seem to keep you from thriving, or explore deeper patterns that you've developed from earlier childhood experiences, I am here every step of the way. No one should walk alone. Call me today for a FREE phone consultation! (PLEASE LEAVE A MESSAGE and I will return your call; I do not answer unknown numbers). Thank you!

I am a licensed Marriage and Family therapist and I have been in this field for the past 20 years. I have worked with clients of all ages and from all walks of life. My special interest is in working with trauma. I am trained in Brainspotting and Trauma Resiliency Model (TRM). I also spent 12 years working in a hospital intensive outpatient program for the chronically mentally ill adults and seniors, who taught me a lot about having compassion for those who are suffering, and to find beauty, hope and strength in each person. I am now in full-time private practice and I love what I do.

My early experiences in mental health were working with “at-risk” youth and families involved in the foster care and juvenile justice systems. Beyond all the technical theories of being a therapist, these youth and families taught me the importance of connection, and one’s capacity to heal and thrive when they feel seen and heard.

We will discuss current problems, look at any connections to your personal and family history, as well as talk about what is working for you and ways to build on that. My ultimate goal is for positive change in the present, whatever that looks like for you. I encourage the use of outside resources such as workshops, groups, classes, 12-step programs, yoga and mindfulness practices as well as religious involvement as part of the healing process.

In all phases of life, we face constant change and unexpected circumstances. Even for those who are strongly independent and resilient, life can be overwhelming at times. Therapy can be a space to explore the parts of life that feel uncertain and unmanageable, and identify where you want to go from here. Building the foundation for growth in therapy starts by creating a safe, genuine space where people can feel heard, understood, and valued for the person they are. I believe that people can foster long-term growth through understanding their journey, connecting with their true emotions, and empowering choice with authenticity.

My clients are intelligent and high-functioning individuals who often experience a sense of longing for peace, clarity, and purpose. Because of difficult relationships with family or oppressive childhood experiences, many of us grow into adulthood feeling unsure of our ability to have healthy, loving relationships and a life that is reflective of our deepest needs, values, and desires.

Finding the right therapist can be challenging, so I recommend that you call at least three people and talk on the phone to see if you have a good sense of a connection. Noticing how someone listens to you, even in this initial, small way, can save you time and effort in setting up consultations. The art of listening well is the beginning of what can be a life giving experience, so I encourage you to see what treatment can do for you. All my best to you, Leslie Bartolf

It may very well be that our deepest longing and need is for connection. To be heard and understood. To be known in places where many others are never allowed. To be more connected to the lost neglected parts of ourselves and those we care about. You have this opportunity in the safety of psychotherapy. It isn't always an easy road. Perhaps this sounds intimidating. Often it entails letting go of destructive habits or getting unstuck. We may need to look at old patterns and create new ones. There may be moments of laughing, crying, or facing hard truths.

You imagined a different life for yourself; it wasn't supposed to be like this. You feel stuck and overwhelmed, lonely and disconnected. Maybe you lost someone you love, you experienced a broken relationship, or your faith is slowly fading away. Perhaps you're burnt out or just can't seem to keep up with work. Depression, anxiety, ADHD... whatever the label is, one thing is clear... you feel lost. You keep hoping for a miracle, but it doesn't arrive. Now... imagine that miracle happening... You're inspired, focused, and connected. You have reasons to laugh again! Why keep waiting, when there is a path forward now?

My speciality is working with people of all ages that are highly sensitive, empathic, and intuitive. They usually know who they are, but keep it quiet in order not to stand out, but to fit in with social situations. Highly sensitive people are like sponges. They absorb other people's energies and are not sure what to do with it. They may have a sixth sense that has been undervalued or they don't know how to use it both in their professional and personal lives. What they do know is how it has been effecting their life and how tiring it is.
